Hey folks! We want to share two very exciting things coming up soon:
- We’re playing at Smith’s Olde Bar this upcoming Monday (7/30) in the Music Room (upstairs) with touring band The Dollyrots, an awesome group based out of Los Angeles that’s been around for a while. We can’t wait to hear and watch their set! Doors open at 7pm, and we’ll hit the stage around 8. Check out the Facebook event, or snag tickets here.
2. We’re STOKED to share some new music with you very soon! We recorded our songs “Turn Around” and “Summer? I Hardly Know Her!” with Damon Moon at Standard Electric Recorders Co. a few weeks ago and are so happy with how they’ve turned out! Be on the lookout for “Summer? I Hardly Know Her!” on August 10th!
We had a blast playing at the Golden Tripod Awards Party as part of TERMINUS Conference + Festival. We all agreed it was one of the best shows we’ve ever played– mostly due to the incredible energy of the crowd.
Seriously, they were awesome:
The party was hosted by Flula Borg of YouTube stardom and Pitch Perfect 2’s Das Sound Machine, among other things. He was awesome, and we were stoked to snag this picture with him:
It was seriously a wonderful night. A HUGE thanks to the folks at TERMINUS Conference + Festival for having us! Check out the killer photos from our set here!
Here’s another video from the crowd:
…and to our first blog post!
Proper photos, an EP release, a website…we’ve really been getting on our game in 2017 #swag
So here’s more about what we’ve been up to lately:
Tiny Fractions EP – Our 4-song EP features three original songs and one of our mash-ups (‘Timber’ by Pitbull/Ke$ha with ‘2 Heads’ by Coleman Hell). All songs were recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeremy Nichols at CoCoa Break Studios in Woodstock, GA. We’re super excited to share these with the world, so take a listen and give us a follow on Spotify!
Photo Shoot – We finally got some professional-quality photos…we figured with the EP release it was time! Our good friend Emily Holst is a fantastic photographer and did a wonderful job with our awkward selves. Photos were taken at various locations around the Marietta Square, mainly at our favorite two bars Johnnie MacCrackens and Two Birds Taphouse.
500 Songs For Kids – We love to perform in the 500 Songs For Kids event benefitting the Songs For Kids Foundation every year. Although this is the first year for The Hearsay, it was Ashton’s 6th year and Travis’ 3rd. It’s an amazing organization with the mission to enrich the lives of children suffering from illness and hardship. We performed on April 1st with the song “Believe” by Cher (watch the video here)! And BONUS, they asked us to do an encore performance on April 28th– we’ll be performing one of our usual covers Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” at Smith’s Olde Bar.
BBQ & Brews Festivals – We got our start as a band a little over a year ago when we were asked to play at the first BBQ & Brews Festival in Canton, GA. Created by a friend of Ashton’s, the BBQ & Brews team has been very good to us– we played at the one in Ellijay in September, and just played the one in Cartersville this past weekend on April 1st. We’ll be at this year’s Canton festival on April 29th!
That’s enough for now, I think 🙂
